STORM 3G Elite is among the most complete signal interface solutions available today. Video interfaces include dual 3G SDI, which can be used as either one 3G SDI signal or one pair of high definition and standard definition signal outputs. Other video interfaces include HDMI input/output; as well as composite and component analog video input/output.
For audio, STORM 3G Elite has four pairs of AES/EBU interfaces; four pairs of balanced XLRs; and a stereo pair with balanced and unbalanced audio monitor out. A switchable line/mic is also available for a dedicated voice-over input.
STORM 3G Elite also features control/sync. Two RS-422 interfaces control a VTR as master or slave. Linear timecode input/output; reference in/through/out; and a locking power connector round out the rest of the interfaces.
